November 19, 2018 - Siemens has upgraded its TÜV-certified Safety Library developed specifically for use with storage and retrieval systems. The benefits of Safety Library V3.0 for users include commissioning and compatibility with a range of failsafe Simatic controllers (from S7-1516F). Boosting the speed of storage cycles are two functions: Vibx (Vibration Extinction) and the Advanced Position Control (APC). APC also requires no additional sensors or actuators, and ensures the permanent prevention of mast vibrations. APC even kicks in under continuously changing vibration conditions, caused for instance by different loading conditions or variable disturbance factors such as wind. Supplementing this function are new additions to the Simotics S-1FG1 portfolio. In the upper output range, external fans now permit traversing processes, allowing a dynamic configuration of traversing motors.
At the lower end of the servo geared motor output range, the two-stage helical bevel gears of the B19 series are now available in a direct-mount version. This new feature enables a greater number of telescopic drives to be fitted with Simotics servo geared motors.
